[orasrv4:/install/depot]# gunzip gdbm-1.8.3-hppa-11.11.depot.gz

I have downloaded a couple of Gzipped binary .depot files from hpux.connect.co.uk and
http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/Gnu/gdbm-1.8.3/ but,
none of them respond to the gunzip command that
is native to hpux 11.11

[orasrv4:/install/depot]# gunzip gdbm-1.8.3-hppa-11.11.depot.gz

gunzip: gdbm-1.8.3-hppa-11.11.depot.gz: not in gzip format

[orasrv4:/install/depot]#

DO I need to use another unzip tool ?

Frank,

I think you would rather use a newer version. The native:

# /usr/contrib/bin/gunzip -V
gunzip 1.2.4 (18 Aug 93)

A more recent GNU version:

# /sphfs1/gnu/bin/gunzip -V
gunzip 1.3.3
(2002-03-08)

I discovered this when I ran into the nolargefiles limit on the native version.

Oops did I say native,
I thought it was:

[orasrv4:/install/depot]# gunzip -V
gunzip 1.3.5 (HP-UX fixlevel 1)

What now ?

How, exactly?

I just did it, using a Mozilla variant on my
VMS system, Shift-MB1, with both the FTP and
HTTP links, and it worked fine. Similarly,
gzip/gunzip 1.2.4 and 1.3.12 had no trouble
interpreting the results. (Nor "vmstar",
after they were unpacked.)

On the other hand, just (MB2-) clicking on
the HTTP link displayed the depot as plain
text, so the server (or browser) could be
doing odd things in some cases. Wget seemed
to do the job with no problems.
